Data Visualization Gallery

Data Visualization Gallery
A weekly exploration of Census data. The Census Bureau is working to increase our use of visualization in making data available to the public, and this gallery is an early part of that effort. The first posted visualizations will pertain largely to historical population data, building on prior work done to portray historical changes in the growth and redistribution of the U.S. population. For later visualizations, the topics will expand beyond decennial census data to include the full breadth of Census Bureau data sets and subject areas, from household and family dynamics, to migration and geographic mobility, to economic indicators.

Andrews & Herzberg Archive This area contains files of data for the book DATA by Andrews and Herzberg. The following is a list of the files available. Each entry contains a description of the tables in the book and the first and last 4 lines of the data. Table 1.1 Sepal Length and Width and Petal Length and Width in Centimetres of Iris setosa, Iris versicolor and Iris virginica (3200 bytes) Table 2.1 Heights of Zea Mays (424 bytes) 10 Fun Tools To Easily Make Your Own Infographics People love to learn by examining visual representations of data. That’s been proven time and time again by the popularity of both infographics and Pinterest. So what if you could make your own infographics? What would you make it of?

These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly,[1] such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. With an information graphic, computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians develop and communicate concepts using a single symbol to process information. In this article you will find 15 useful infographics for designers and developers. The evolution of web design

Derby lines, futures wagers, betting tips, news and results Statistics for every Kentucky Derby since 1875, presented in 25 year intervals. Includes the names of the win, place and show horse, margin of victory, the winning jockey, total number of Derby nominees, number of starters, winning time, net pay-out to winner and track condition. Learning Visually Infographics work in the classroom because they grab students and allow an entry point to learning — and because they sum up pages and pages, even chapters, of information that would take a reader hours to process. Interactive infographics make kids want to immediately start clicking around to see what’s what. For a teacher who prioritizes an inquiry-driven classroom, that’s a great starting point.

linear regression analysis An important part of statistical analysis is being able to look at graphical representation of data, extract meaning and make comments about it, particularly related to the context. Graph interpretation is a difficult skill to teach as there is no clear algorithm, such as mathematics teachers are used to teaching, and the answers are far from clear-cut. This post is about the challenges of teaching scatterplot interpretation, with some suggestions. When undertaking an investigation of bivariate measurement data, a scatterplot is the graph to use. On a scatterplot we can see what shape the data seems to have, what direction the relationship goes in, how close the points are to the line, if there are clear groups and if there are unusual observations. The problem is that when you know what to look for, spurious effects don’t get in the way, but when you don’t know what to look for, you don’t know what is spurious.

Online Statistics Courses What is Statistics? Statistics is an academic discipline concerned with the collection, graphic representation, and analysis of data taken from specific population surveys. College statistics programs often focus on three subsections of statistical study: applied, theoretical, and mathematical statistics. Applied statistics courses consolidate the study of descriptive and inferential statistics, which uses results from probability studies to explain clear numeric correlations in data as well as the more random results. On-campus and online statistics courses that discuss theoretical statistics use logic and probability theory to explain why data sets yield certain results while mathematical statistics are concerned with fundamentally altering experiment designs to create different probability data.
